Open Fit Hearing Aids

Open fit hearing aids are small devices placed behind the ear with a slim tube attached to the device and inserted down the ear canal. They are non-occluding. This style is good for people with a high frequency hearing loss or mild to moderate hearing loss. They help you hear better when background noise is present.
